From Joan Hall, president of the Jefferson Park Neighborhood Association on the neighborhood, the city and mini-dorm developer Michael Goodman's ongoing dispute on the city's definition of single family zoning and group dwellings:
Dear Neighbors and Friends,
JPNA, the City of Tucson, and mini-dorm developer Michael Goodman have tentatively agreed to mediate, over the next month, the issue of Goodman group dwellings (“mini-dorms”) in Jefferson Park. We are hopeful that this will lead to a City-wide determination with a clearer and broader definition of what constitutes a group dwelling.
Therefore, the hearing that was scheduled for tomorrow, July 27th (Weds), will be postponed to the Aug meeting. We will let you know when that is.
We still need a show of support for this issue, so keep sending your comments to Ms. Russlyn Wells at Russlyn.Wells@tucsonaz.gov and to your Councilmembers and the Mayor. Case numbers are C10-11-07 and C10-11-06, and comments might say “We support the efforts by JPNA and its negotiating partners to resolve, for once and for all, the issues of group dwellings in low density residential neighborhoods.”
